CCL's Playerzombie Respawn Fix

This addon removes the gamebreaking Playerzombie respawn system on all escape maps.

Wut? What respawn system?
It was a WIP feature from last year that gives spectators on escape mode another chance to play as playerzombie by refilling their lives when certain objectives are being completed. The downside are the gamebreaking bugs which are listed below and no fixes... It just stayed in this WIP state even now.

Does this addon really works?
Try to play on ce_roanokepd and die once if you want to know if it works.
You won't respawn as playerzombie until map change anymore.

What does this addon offers:
- Playerzombies have only a set of lives now like how it used to be without the new system.

- No more endless respawn as zombies until map change when you die in singleplayer or as a team in multiplayer mode.

- No more exploit while being a coackroach and rejoining the server turning you back to a playerzombie.

- "Disable playerzombie" option works now without this respawn system.

- No more weird hang ups while finished a map.

- This addon will just get ignored if you join a public server which doesn't have this add-on.
- Server owners can use this addon without problems. Players won't get kicked because they don't have this VPK.

Hi Nico :) They have only added my zombie AI nav overhaul addon which fixed almost all of the zombie navigation problems for the official escape maps. You still need this addon to fix the gamebreaking respawn bug that happens on some escape maps.

Keep in mind that this addon only works when you are the host or when a server has it installed.
Thx you for the nice comment Nico. Hope you enjoy the game more without those gamebreaking bugs and I would like to recommend you to try out my map HotZ :P

Wow... bought the game 2 days ago and I'm really liking it so far, but as I play and start to understand the dynamics, I'm also starting to find and suffer the bugs and lacks the game still has.

So, I'm halfway reading "Contagion Workout" thread and it's disheartening seing how a good product is being let down just out of lazyness or greediness. I hope things to get better as I advance reading through said thread, although for what I've read so far, it would be a real surprise, to say the least.

As of today, I assume this hotfix is still needed, am I right? Or did they include it in last update?

Anyway Sama, I'd like to live to see the game going f2p and people like you take control and make it the way it should be.

BTW, I've seen a few of your vids and you are a sick player mate! Learnt from you already :)

Thanks for the contributions, CHEERS!

It's pretty sad when fans have to fix simple problems that the devs won't fix themselves.

Unfortunately I don't have access to the source code so I can't do much about it.

I can't deny it that Contagion sucks atm with all the minor bugs pilling up until it explode. Simple fix like this are nowhere to be seen. This game is still playable but when the lead developer didn't care enough to fix all the bugs that appears with each update and ignoring the community itself then it gets downhill very fast!
